This project was an investigation for the development of a high-quality cost-effective Cessna 172 type-specific FSTD. The CURVS research program consisted of multiple micro-projects that were distributed to a team of researchers in the ADL at Carleton University. The main objective of the project was to develop technologies by assembling COTS components to build a FSTD that is relatively inexpensive and therefore accessible to smaller flight schools. Visual cueing, vibratory cueing, and sound cueing systems that were developed for the CURVS are discussed in this thesis. A visual system, sound system, and a standalone vibratory cue that shakes the pilot seat were implemented and analyzed. Finally, flight tests were performed to obtain simulator tuning data. A quantitative comparison between the aircraft and the simulator, and as well as a qualitative evaluation of the simulator is also presented. Results confirm that the cueing system satisfy their design requirements.
